Waste collections services

General waste collections

What you can’t reduce, reuse or recycle, we can recover or safely dispose of

For waste that can’t be recycled, Viridor is investing in new state-of-the-art energy recovery facilities to squeeze as much energy as we can out of residual waste.

We guarantee that working with Viridor will increase your resource efficiency. With the benefit of our experience, you could reduce your investment in materials and often save money from better management of the waste your business produces.

We will tailor the service we provide to your business needs; whether that’s providing the right containers and equipment or a flexible collection that fits around your schedule.

Confidential waste collections

Some material is not for public consumption, which is why you need Viridor to destroy it

We work to the highest standards set up by BSIA Code of Practice BS: EN 1513:2009 for information destruction. We are also certified to international standards ISO9001 and 14001, ISO5001 and OHSAS18001 for quality, environmental and health and safety management by the British Standard Institute (BSI).

We monitor our confidential waste sites 24/7 via CCTV. Our collection vehicles are fitted with heavy-duty security locks and immobilisation equipment. If that wasn’t enough, GPS tracking allows us to pinpoint exactly where the trucks and vans are at any given time.

Once your confidential waste has been shredded and/or pulverised, the end result is barely recognisable and so fragmented it can often be recycled immediately. Any material that can’t be recovered will go for incineration or disposal at one of our own sites. For a piece of mind, we will give you a ‘Certificate of Destruction’ for your records.
